Palmina:

Thank you so much for your compliments! This is Greg Jr. who flew in about 9 years ago and has stayed on our lake ever since. He has a little band on his leg but we don't know from where he actually came. He is a wonderful boy who has fathered a duckling or two in his day and been a loving mate to many. Things just wouldn't be the same without Greg Jr. Many ducks have come and gone, but Greg Jr. Always remains!

I'm glad you stopped by and hope you have a wonderful day.

Thank you so much for stopping by to see Greg Jr. He is a rather large Mallard, and by far my favorite!

Thank you so much for your kind words.

Have a wonderful afternoon.

Sincerely, MaryAlice

Thank you VERY much! I was quite pleased with the shot because usually Greg flies too fast for me!

What a beautiful capture of a duck in flight, Mary Alice! Greg Jr. is a very handsome mallard. It's almost incredible he's been with you for 9 years! That's wonderful and I hope he'll stay for many more years to come. By the way, I also love ducks and if you like you can find them under the tag 'Ducks'. Greetings from Germany, Anne

This one is just awesome! Is it a take-off or a touchdown? Splendid work! Regards, Rafal

MaryAlice on March 19, 2008

Rafal:

This was a touchdown! I'm so glad you like it! He's my favorite Mallard, Greg Jr. He's been around for years now and occasionally likes to show off a little! I think he enjoys having his picture made! :)

Thank you so much for your kind visit.

Greetings,

Mary Alice

Tlapp on March 19, 2008

Yep. It can't have been a take-off...firstly, the water is too still. secondly , the duck seems too be perfectly dry and thirdly, and apparently most importantly - the title sais so :)...I was too impressed by the photo to check the title. Regards, Rafal

MaryAlice on March 19, 2008

Rafal:

Your comment is making me laugh! :) It's okay that you didn't notice the title! I often skip people's titles too when I'm overwhelmed by the image. It makes me happy that you skipped it actually. :) It was a compliment!

Thank you again for your kindness and for making me smile!

Cheers,

Mary Alice

Great shot, It´s not easy to get frozen images with birds in movment and landing. And great history about Mr. Greg Jr.!

Greetings Mary Alice!
